to you hang on. i have jonathan here with me from our nbc affiliate in new york. you have new information as well. >> there have been reports that an arrest has been made. several law enforcement sources tell us that has not happened. there will abnormal statement coming from the justice department and fbi shortly to refute those reports. what we do know there is this video as michael and pete williams have been explaining of a man putting a bag down near the scene and they have a tentative id on who that person may be and they want to question and speak to that man. i do not know yet if they found that man. they may have. they may be speaking to him. as of now there is no arrest in this case and the investigation as michael and pete were just explaining, is moving forward but there is no break in the case in the sense that an arrest has been made. >> jonathan, regarding the update from law enforcement personnel, we were expecting an update at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. originally that was around 1:00 p.m. eastern time. when are we getting this update. >> that is going to be an e-mail statem
is coming from. >> let's to our panel. joe welsh. with me in new york, jonathan alter, columnist for "the bloomberg view," msnbc political analyst. new book "center holds obama and his enemies" is out june 4th. some believe the boston marathon bombing means de facto we should pause, slow down the process of immigration reform. john mccain calls that ludicrous. what do you think? >> i'm with john mccain on this one. i mean, this is almost pathetic kind of excuse. what does it have to do with a mexican living in the united states who has done everything right and wants their kids to be able to get ahead in american life? what is this incident in boston have to do -- >> the argument is these are two individuals who emigrated from dagestan, from chechnya, came here, and ended up wreaking havoc. >> so what the critics don't get is that what the immigration bill would do, if you actually look at where they are in their preparation of it, is it would strengthen our immigration laws and make it harder for bad guys to get in by modernizing our immigration system. so people who say that, you know,
online to the bostonmarathontips, all one word, fbi.gov. let's get to the manhunt itself. jonathan dietz is in new york. we're trying to figure out -- you know why i'm asking this, it's a speculation, right now at the command center, operating center, what is happening in terms of the filtering, archiving and catalog of calls coming in. we're told by pete williams that the fbi is receiving calls of suspected matchups with the faces here. >> they are getting some names and now what they are trying to do is run those names through data is bas and s databases and there is no name to match the suspects. but they are operating those lines. they have task force teams obviously ready to run out and follow any leads as they come in. some names are being offered from the calls and e-mails that are coming in but as of now there is no certain match and they are, again, using all their computers and technology to try to, as the names come in, to try to find them and find out which tips are more credible than the others. >> i'm wondering, jonathan, if you were in that crowd and survived and you're wa
. >>. >> jonathan, we've got the materials at hand which has been discovered, the pressure cooker, battery pack and circuit board and i didn't mention a piece of black nylon that was part of the bag. >> the best estimate that we have gotten is if they can track this to where they were sold and who purchased them, that's going to lead us to the suspect. we've seen this in previous investigations in the 1993 world trade center bombing. and as a result they caught the suspects m sa suspects. same theory here. that's part of the investigation and pouring all over the videotapes for leads and that one piece of videotape of a suspect putting down a bag outside the lord & taylor or caught on the lord & taylor surveillance tape is another. again, as pete williams and myself have been reporting all day, there is no suspect. there is no arrest. there is no specific name. now, we've been told that there have been several names out there that obviously they would want to run them down but we've been told that it's ruled out. the investigation is ongoing, moving forward. the piece of tape is one of many cri
and jonathan capehart, political writer for "washington post" and msnbc contributor. luke, are they going to have the votes in the end or not? >> most likely not. 60 is a very steep hill for this. the reason why, a lot of those republican senators who voted for this to move forward on cloture have now backtracked. what's interesting, though, i think that's really happened here is two things. everyone's attention shifted to boston, to the pr push that the gun control lobby that they would have is not the same. the newtown families aren't registers as much today as they would have had that tragedy in boston not occurred. number two, boehner in the house put out a pretty declarative statement last week. we're going to water down whatever comes out of the senate. if you're a republican senator, if you're a red state democrat, why go out on a limb for this when the house is probably going to sit on it? >> harry reid, i mean, he knows when he's got the votes and when he doesn't. why would he proceed with this? i mean, i wonder, is that part of the pr strategy? put it on the floor, let it fail a
's drill down on the legal status of the boston bombing suspect. kendall coffey. the great jonathan turley, here in washington. thank you for this. can they decide later if a poiee of evidence shows up a week from now, that shows a connection, e-mail, whatever, connection with al qaeda, taking orders, timing, that kind of thing? does the government change the status of this defendant? >> no, he's a u.s. citizen. he has presumption of innocence. some people get constitutional rights and some do not. they've always focused on whether the person is a u.s. senate as key factor here. what senator graham was talking about is pretty alarming. he's talking about enemy combatants which is -- >> suppose you go overseas to join al qaeda somewhere and you're with them. are you still an american under the law? >> my view you are. >> under the government's view? >> well, we haven't changed the u.s. constitution yet. and what senator graham is talking about is actually wruziwruz i using enemy combatant status as a way of getting evidence. it's no longer the justification we have to ice thsolate them in g
reporter jonathan dienst. thank you, jonathan. what do we got new? you've listened to the first part of this show. we're talking about what the suspect has had to say, the surviving suspect about being out there all alone. two brothers operating alone, technically, and also apparently ideologically. they were picking up their radicalization over the internet. not through any coaching or role of anybody as a sort of a recruiter. >> well, that is the claim that investigators say is being made by the wounded younger brother who continues to recover in the hospital. investigators are now running around, as you heard, they're trying to verify that. they are checking with all of the relatives. you've got the wife, you've got two sisters in new jersey. you've got the parents overseas. you've got russian intelligence. you've got -- they're tracking their cell phones. as of now, nothing to indicate, but, again, it is still very early on for them to have done a deep dive to find out exactly if there are any connections to any others, whether there's a bomb maker or a trainer or some sort of ji
in saying they smelled ammonia fumes. jonathan hunt is live. what do we know about the safety record? >> this is the compliance history report. at it put out by the texas commission on environmental quality, and this report lists five investigations carried out in 2006 and 2007, but only one actual violation, and according to officials with the texas commission on environmental quality, that one violation was only considered a minor one. listen. >> there was a violation in 2006. there was an odor complaint. we had an investigation. we resolved the complaint with having the company come in and get authorized for permit. i think the permit was the resolution. >> so bottom line, bill, it appears there was actually very little to suggest any prior problems with this particular fertilizer plant that could possibly have led to last night's extraordinarily tragic events. >> which leads to more questions, and it's not clear how this happened. what are the experts saying about how an explosion like this could possibly take place? >> i spoke to a hazardous materials expert earlier today, bill,
now wnbc's jonathan dienst is with us from new york. i understand you have a lot to brief us on in terms of the travel, in terms of the weaponry found at the site the other night. whatever you've got, we need it. >> we're told there are seven improvised explosive devices that have been recovered from the vehicle where they were allegedly throwing out the bombs at the police officers, to some of the devices that were found including one of those pressure cooker bombs that the older brother heaved toward the police officers and was opening fire during that wild and insane shootout that was taking place overnight. and the search continues for this suspect. they're doing it literally in a grid house-by-house, location-by-location in and around the area where he was last seen. have the whole area cordoned off. why is it taking so much time? because it is a significant area they're recovering. they remain hopeful that they will track him down, but we've got no indication that they have a sight on him at this hour. >> tell me about the older brother's travel to russia. >> yeah, it w
, the president addressed the nation. here's abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl. >> the president referred to the bombing as the event in boston, but make no mistake, the white house is treating this as a terrorist attack. when the president came into the briefing room a short while ago, he vowed to find out who was responsible and hold them responsible. >> we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> the president said he's directed the full resources of the federal government to help not only with the investigation in boston and the recovery in boston, but also to secure other parts of the united states as necessary. the president was informed of this just minutes after it happened and immediately began to receive briefings from his national security team. we have a photo of the call he had with fb
. now the feds are asking to speak with the wife themselves. jonathan hunt is in studio this afternoon. where is this woman right now? do we even know? >> as far as we know, shep, catherine russell tsarnaev is currently at her parent' home in north kingstown rhode island. federal agents were at the home, apparently seeking to speak to her, but her lawyer is the only wound has spoken to the fed cozy the said, i spoke to them, that's all i can say right now. we're deciding what we want to do and how we want to approach this. it appears that they will ultimately. , just a question of when. >> shepard: how much more too we know about their relationship? >> not that much. we just are not hearing from her or the family. what we do know is that she met her future husband when she was studying at university in boston. they apparently met at a nightclub, and according to her attorney, she later converted to islam and married tsarnaev. asked about her religion, the attorney said, she believes in the ten ten nets of islam and the koran. she believes in god. her parents acknowledge they knew very
extremist ties, but the case on him was closed. >> alisyn: joining us is jonathan guilliams, a former fbi special agent with joint terrorism task force as well as a retired navy seal and formal federal air marshall. you have done it all jonathan. >> i get bored easy. >> alisyn: you were talking to us while we were talking to molly that you think there could have been mistakes made at the finish line at the boston marathon they could have secured it better? >> sure. you typically see in any special event in some events like a marathon, the beginning you will have in the case of the marathon you have like 70,000 people there. but at the very end, you are going to have all those people congregating, you will have the families there and so typically the end of a event whether it's a yankee game or marathon is a very, very critical time. and it's a critical area. so you have to look at what the vulnerabilities are to that critical area. and you would typically freeze that zone. >> alisyn: when you say freeze, you mean not allow backpacks to get into that square block radius? >> what good does
down when you compare it to 30 or 40 years ago. the fox report's jonathan hunt is here with more on that. we hear about the threats all the time. but the facts show that we are more safe than before. explain that. >> yeah. the worst attack we've gone through since 9-11 was actually the fort hood shooting in 2009, 13 people killed there. boston stands out because it is, in fact, among the highest casualties with three dead and 176 wounded in that attack. other than that, 9-11, of course, then you have the 1993 world trade center attack, the 1995 oklahoma city bombing. but other than that, as i said, relatively safe. much better than the 1970s, for instance, when there were far more global terrorist attacks. experts say part of the reason is because law enforcement, very simply in cities like new york city, have become much better since 9-11 at stopping these things. listen. >> since 9-11, new york has been the target of 17 plots and only one of them you could say really succeeded and the suspect made it to times square. but the others didn't work because of a lot of good intellige
're welcome. jenna: jonathan cha unc er is a form terrorist analyst at the treasury department. what catches your attention when you see what the last 24 hours has brought us? >> obviously right now what is grabbing my attention is that we don't seem to have any leads at all. this reminds me a great deal of the atlanta bombing in 1996 that went unsolved for seven years. what we look for right now is perhaps a foreign group to claim responsibility, which we have not seen. in fact the pakistani taliban went out of its way today to disavow the attacks, this is a group that was responsible for that 2010 times square attempted attack and so they've disavowed it. no one else has come forward on this. and so, you know, we begin to question about whether this is a domestic attack. it's obviously incredibly too soon to tell. >> you studied arabic extensively. you jump on some of these websites to check out the quote unquote public chatter that is happening before or after an event like this. what have you seen, read, heard? >> haven't seen anything much at all. there was a group in jordan celebrating
. heather: former fbi special counterterrorism agent in new york, jonathan gilliam joins us to talk more about this you're a lead investigator in the case. someone knows who did this, begging people and the public come forward with any tips they may deem important for them to see, pictures, information, anything for the public's help. what does that tell but the state of their investigation? >> you can never tell where the bureau or the task force is in their investigation. they're the best at what they do. from this point forward there is nobody better than what they do as far as digging through this massive puzzle of, of investigative leads. one thing that you have to look at here is that there's two investigations going on. there's one investigation that's going on from the point of the explosion for ward. and there's also an investigation going on looking how this actually happened. the second investigation of how this actually happened ties in with who actually did it and that's where they're asking the public for their assistance. most people don't realize they can be an integral p
-- that hospital room now. jonathan watel, one of our fox producers, talk to one of his roommates a short time ago and this is part of the conversation they had now. listen carefully here. >> do you think your friend did it? >> no. >> why? >> because-- what's your friend like? >> what can you tell us about your friend? >> (inaudible) and a brief conversation from earlier today, megyn, i want to stress now, he does not consider this 20-year-old saudi national is not considered a suspect from earlier today and police said, quote, no one, no one is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were
through these tough times. >> alisyn: we turn to fox news contributor father jonathan morris who joins us. more evil that we've seen. what are we supposed to make of it? >> well, i think the first thing to make of it, and i'll talk about this in my church a little later this morning, is that not all ideas are created equal. as the doctor before us in the last setting spoke, not all ideas are created equal. some are true, some are false. whether you use the name of god or not. some are rational and some are stupid. anyone who suggests that their idea or their belief impells them to kill the innocent are not only radical but they have lost their minds, and we have to make sure that nobody gets away with saying somehow these are my beliefs, my beliefs are based on my understanding of god, and therefore, they might be equally as true as others. simply not true o. all of us, believer, non-believer,s christians, jews, we can all stand up to that and we have to. >> clayton: what do you say to those who might find their faith rattled. those who were there looking on the horror, how can god let th
